Cardinal Brandmüller: Coronavirus is NOT Punishment From God

It is “surely” not God who punishes man, when evil comes upon him, but man himself who acts autonomously and punishes himself, Cardinal Walter Brandmüller writes on Kath.net (March 28) about the coronavirus.

He calls all evil a bitter fruit of sin “but not a punishment of an offended and angry God”.

According to Brandmüller, the created man unleashed all evil in creation by standing up against the Creator and salvation happens when man returns to Him.

Viruses exist in nature. They are part of the creation. They tend to have different effects on different species.

Demonic activity intends to harm man. Divine security, however, prevents much of this harm via Angelic protection. There are four sins that call to heaven for vengeance. among which are sodomy and murder (which IMHO includes abortion).

Those two sins, rejecting Divine and natural law, also implicitly reject the Angelic protection provided by God (cf sanctifying grace) against certain evils, leaving man vulnerable.

God surely DOES punish mankind. Christ's death upon the Cross, suffering the terrible punishment that we deserve for our sins as a pure spotless sin offering to the Father to appease His Wrath is surely proof of that.

When mankind refuses to repent and their sins increase, yet they mock and Blaspheme God, and no longer believe in Our Lord in as much as they refuse to allow Christ's death to …More

When mankind refuses to repent and their sins increase, yet they mock and Blaspheme God, and no longer believe in Our Lord in as much as they refuse to allow Christ's death to cover their sins, enabling them to be blotted out. That is when these sorts of Chastisements come again to the world, as a necessary judgement, so that we might be punished. God's wrath and His Just Judgement in times of great apostasy often come down upon the world, to alert us, and to enable us to make a timely alteration to our spiritual pathway. It is now we must pray, beg for Mercy, repent and go down on our knees to seek forgiveness, before we die and the chance is lost.
Pachamama opened up the entire Vatican led Church to Idolatry.

God ALWAYS punishes that. Dr TM spoke of it in a couple of talks last week

Apparently this Cardinal hasn't read the Old Testament.

God is just and does positively punish. It is all over Scripture from Genesis - why are we no longer in the Garden of Eden? - to the last, where the False Prophet, the Beast, and the Dragon are caught and thrown into the lake of fire to be tormented forever.
